Statement of Carole Brown

April 19, 2007

?We all owe a debt of thanks to Frank Kruesi for his years of service to the Chicago Transit Authority. He was instrumental in securing federal funds for the Pink Line, Brown Line, and new buses and railcars. Ridership increased steadily under his tenure, and no one has worked harder to highlight the funding challenges caused by the state's 1983 funding formula.

"I am also delighted that the Mayor has asked Ron Huberman to be CTA President. Ron is a talented leader and a skilled manager, and there is no greater sign of the Mayor's commitment to transit customers, and to our pressing funding issues in Springfield."
